Hyaluronic acid

To date, Hyaluronic acid is considered a top miracle cosmetic ingredient that has so many proven benefits. The main feature is the super hydrating properties because it can hold 1000X its weight in water. Because it is such a water-loving ingredient it has a “Plumping” effect and helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. And when your skin is happy and hydrated then it also makes new cells!

 This is an ingredient that might sound a bit scary and has a chemical-sounding name, but it actually is a substance we have in our bodies. For example, it is found as a cushion and lubricant in our joints, or it can be injected as a face filler.

There are two main sources of Hyaluronic acid and if you believe in cruelty-free products you should understand the source of your Hyaluronic acid.

Animal-based Hyaluronic acid is extracted from Rooster combs, whereas vegan plant-based Hyaluronic Acid comes from fermentation of bacteria.

Fantastic results have led to no shortage of cosmetic products featuring Hyaluronic Acid. Because it’s water-soluble it’s ideal in Oil-Free serums such as Botanical Serums or Vitamin C serums, night serums and it creates dewy face creams. It is always advised to “lock in” a hyaluronic acid serum with a cream.

If you have scleroderma then sorry Hyaluronic acid is not a good ingredient for you.
